The scoring wing is now going to learn with Kobe...

He gets the start tonight out there with fellow new laker kaman, and the bench players from last year


I want to see points!
And swag!

Player Evaluations. Make a page/thread for him.

 

That subforum/section needs to dramatically be updated. Missing basically all of the new players. I mentioned this a while back and no one said or did a thing. Please.

Can't remember having a guy like that to help Kobe on the perimeter with the scoring load in such a long time. So refreshing.

Started very well and became cold. We didn't continue finding him while he was hot, so that brought him down. Hope he can recover though with a beast performance on Tuesday.

Well, Eddie Jones maybe, but that was way back in the day obviously & pre Kobe really being more of the man.

pretty much.

Also another thing.

Nick Young had 3 steals last night.   He is REALLY trying on the defensive end and I like it!!!

We gotta also look at the fact that when Meeks came in the ball pretty much stopped moving and a lot of shots became iso's at that point, that has a lot to do with it as a lot of our offense became forced shots till Meeks was put back on the bench.

We know Nick Young offensively already.

But defensively he's been putting forth a LOT of effort the first two games, taking advantage of his length. 

He got 2 steals in game 1 and 3 steals in game 2.  

I know it's not a huge sample size but Nick Young is trying defensively thus far and I think that's what we should watch him on, we already know the inns and outs of him offensively.

I'm sure Kobe likes that.  And Young got messed up cause he couldn't get foul calls either when he went to the basket.

 

Amazing, Kobe sent him a pair of his own personal shoes and he winds up getting jibbed by the refs just like Kobe lol ;)

The only thing I want to see from Nick Young is better shot selection. I can live with him being underwhelming in all other stat categories than points, but he needs to score the right points.

^ Well being about the only legitimate shot creator on the team outside of Kobe on the perimeter, it's inevitable especially he's gonna' take some bad shots. Kobe does as well, just that he tends to make them more than anyone in the league.

What I do like is that he is looking to facilitate more often than he usually has.  His assists against Denver were a  beaut!

^ Yes! He is buying in early and that's a great sign. He wants to please the coaching staff and his teammates. He wants to do all he can to leave a good impression and feel wanted next year again.

not to mention he's been playing defense, trying on the defensive end as well and getting back on defense.   Those long arms are helpful though at times he does seem too eager to play the pass lane.  But seriously those first 2 games he was trying so hard on defense he almost fouled out heheh.

But I like how he's normally able to score around 13-17 points just casually in a game when he usually rests in the 4th.  It means he'll probably have his most productive year as a member of the Lakers which I will never complain about, the 17 ppg Nick Young, playing on defense and distributing the ball is a very good player to have.
